What is a mission statement? A mission statement is a short written statement of purpose for an individual, a company or an organization. Mission statements guide the actions, goals and direction of why you exist. It is reviewed regularly and every project is compared to the statement to see if the project is in alignment with what the mission statement proclaims.
How to write a mission statement: Some people just sit down and write out a mission statement in a few minutes. Others attend workshops which ask questions and give examples on how you define your values and work ethics and discuss what you want to accomplish short and long term.
For me, I had a manila folder in my desk drawer that I kept adding clips and sentences of values and beliefs I felt really meant a lot to me. I kept adding to this folder for two years before deciding to take it with me to a spiritual workshop. In between speakers I walked on the grounds. Here I found a huge Buddha statue where I sat on a bench and roughed out my mission statement together over a period of two days. I fine-tuned it after letting the rough copy sit for a week or so. I still like it.
I review my mission statement 2-4 times each year to see if I’m still on track. Because I’ve written out a set of Beliefs, I also read that. It’s amazing what happens when you put your ideas and goals down on paper. Over the years I’ve come to realize that I’m accomplishing everything I’ve set out to in this area of beliefs and mission.
So, what do you believe in? What would you live for? Die for? Fight for?
Now, tap on your chest when you repeat our mantra…
Miracles Happen Here. Miracles Happen Here. Miracles Happen Here.
We believe that for you. And that’s that. Now, let’s get to it…Read on for my own statements.
